A bit of an Obsession....

Hi guys. 
    See I told you I would have a card for each day this week.  lol... I know it's a bit of a shocker, but I have been having a wonderful time coloring lately and as you will see I am just a little bit obsessed with this adorable stamp by Krista Smith over at her Saturated Canary store.  I just love that she is so perfect for so many different kinds of cards.  Of course her beautiful eyes and awesome hair just make her all the more fun for me to work with. 
      I wanted to thank everyone for all your well wishes.  I finally received the call last night at about 8:45pm from the Dr's clinic. It seems that there have been so many tests going out that they are taking a little longer than they usually do.  They did however get the test results back and the kids do not show positive for pertussis.  Yay!  We can all head back to school and work in the morning.  I'm not so sure that M&Ms  are all that thrilled, as they both still have a nasty cough, but back to school they will go. 
     I am still getting all of my May birthday cards done, so guess what I have to share with you all today?  However before we get to that let me just give my Sister-in-law a Happy Birthday shout out  as today is her Birthday!   Happy Birthday Kara! We all love you very much and hope you have a great day...
     Moving right along I once again pulled out my fave digi  'duck duck, goose'  from Saturated Canary.  I cropped her off and put her with one of my Spellbinders.  I just love how she looks with these Miss Caroline-Dolled Up from MME paper pad.  Not only did I want to make this card for a birthday, but I want to enter it into the Oozak blog challenge which is to use Spring Colors.  I think that the pinks, blues and greens work so well together and really make you feel like Spring is in the air. 
     Ok guys,  wish us luck getting Maddie back into the groove in the morning.  She is suppose to be heading back to bed and all of a sudden she is crying about not feeling good.  To quote my friend. "Uffda"'s gonna be a long night.  lol...
     We are suppose to get into the 80s once again and I don't know that I am quite ready for the heat if I can't stay in my own house and just be lazy.  heehee.. Just kidding.  I will admit that I have been somewhat on the lazy side these last few days (in between running from one M's room to the other) I have been laying on our wonderful couch coloring and watching the show 'Bones' with Jerry.  Once I was able to get past all the skeletons and gore of it I really enjoy the story line underneath.  lol   Oh well, back to work and God willing we are hoping to get back into our walking routine as well.  We have let that slide and I don't like that at all.  :O(  We'll get there I'm sure.  Well guys, if you've hung in with me this long let me just wish you all a great day.  I am heading to bed. 
    Talk at you tomorrow. 
Hugs, Lisa G

Gorgeous image and love how you have blown her up so you can see her eyes. So glad no pertussis and that you are all doing well.

Love how you made this gal into a 'big head' and framed her in the nestie... she looks fab! And the card is just gorgeous!

I'm also glad to hear that the M&Ms have made it through the worst of this sickness, I totally think it is always worse to be sick this time of year than in the winter. At least in the winter it doesn't feel like you are missing out on so much!
Oh and I love Bones too! I usually have to get caught up on it on DVD though since the show always seems to be on against something else that I already watch, LOL!
